    Dee and Ross lying so bad they want the team to win so he can sell the team and make a profit.
    He wanted the upgrades to increase its value for a a bigger sale later. Dee needs to Shut the F up
    Ross needs to sell the team to Arrison. Go back to new york Ross!

    I love how people say "Ross should just sell the team", like that is what will solve the future uncertainty. Wake up call people, Ross selling the team in the future is where the uncertainty and worry is. Ross himself is never going to relocate the team, it is the fact that no one knows who the new owner will be or what their intentions are. With the state the stadium is in right now, the last thing MIAMI Dolphins fans should want is Ross selling the team. Right now, he might be the only thing keeping this team from heading west to LA.

    LOL. So he didn't get a few hundred million dollars from the state of Florida so now he's going to take his billion dollars and go home? What a putz.

    Not that I believe it, anyway. It's pure posturing. Ross has been telling everyone who'll listen is the reason he fumbled around with every major decision the first few years is because he was sitting back and trying to learn what to do and kept guys like Parcells and Sparano around when he shouldn't have as a result. "On the job training" is a favorite catchphrase in interviews, quickly followed up by a promise that he's finally getting the hang of it. You think he's going to just give up now, at a time when the team is worth about $100 million less than what he paid for it, when he just spent big money in the offseason, when he's going around looking and sounding pumped after the draft, after ****ing around with our uniforms... all because his rush job attempt to crowbar a tax free loan from the taxpayers went belly up? Puh-lease. I mean, don't get me wrong. How I wish it were true! How I wish someone with some sense would own this team! But it's not true. At least it won't be any time soon.

    I also like how people seem to think the team can be sold to anyone, like an old tennis racquet on Ebay. These sales have to be approved by the owners, men who are invested in the status quo. Nobody who wants to move the team is getting their balls within 10 miles of owning the Dolphins.

    Exactly! If Ross sells this team this team is leaving Miami. Nobody in their right mind will spend close to a billion dollars on a team and then oh yeah, break out another $900 mill to build a new stadium on top of that!

    If Ross sells the new owner will have a deal lined up with a city that actually WANTS NFL FOOTBALL that will build him a state of the art stadium free of charge so he will move the Dolphins there.

    If Ross sells....NFL football is dead in Miami! Maybe forever (ie ...see LA)

    I'm on record not liking Ross and Dee.

    Damn, they make me look good.

    I feel like Mister Magoo.

    I also oppose the stadium. That's a bad place, a very bad place.

    Otherwise we're okay, except the motion sickness logo and practice caliber jerseys. I probably forgot something.

    You can't buy a team on ebay? To heck with that site.
